History of Bunnings Warehouse
British brothers Arthur and Robert Bunning settled in Perth after leaving London in 1886. When they earned a government building contract, they formed a group of building companies that would later become Bunning Bros Pty Ltd. In the following years, the brothers focused more on sawmilling and timber distribution. It continued to expand into several new mills around Western Australia.
Bunnings became a public company in 1952, where they expanded into retailing and acquisition of several hardware stores. Until in 1994, Australian conglomerate Wesfarmers bought out Bunnings Limited. The popular red hammer symbol that is still used today was introduced in the late 1995.
After the acquisition of Wesfarmers, the first Bunnings Warehouse opened in the suburb of Sunshine in Victoria, Melbourne. The retail operations were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic but were able to expand its online store.
